2. A solar collector panel with a surface area of 32 ft² receives energy from the sun at a rate of 150 BTU/hr per ft² of collector surface. Thirty-six percent of the incoming energy is lost to the surroundings. The remainder is used to heat liquid water from 110 to 140°F. The water passes through the solar collector with a negligible pressure drop. Neglecting kinetic and potential energy effects, determine (at steady state) the mass flow rate of water, in lb/min. How many gallons of water at 140°F can eight collectors provide in a 30 minutes? (10 pts)
